    well its been along time comming, but she is done. thousands of hours in body and paint... painted twice..and who knows how much cash in materials. but this is the end result. i'm super stoked! all the credit of the paint and body goes to george at Geo's Chop Shop. he did a awesome job on this thing. you can get a hold of him @ geoschopshop.com. he is out of the bay area, close to santa rosa. anyway let me know what you think, i love it.

    LOVE the body, but the roof isn't my gig. I am sure it took a buncha work though. Congrats on the finished paint.

    Your car looks killer. Can you give me a rough idea how much you got tied up in your body work ,materials,and paint job.I am thinking of having my 54 chevy done like that.
     
  11. NICE! Can we see some better shots of the roof?

    its wierd, but i cant get any pictures of the roof to turn out. its too bright or something. as far as a price... i would say its over 15 g's...all house of color and you get what you pay for..keep in mind its a huge car with lots of body lines though. and my buddy george is super anal too..

    thanks for the input boys...i love the car, but im nervous to drive it anywhere. we used roth flake. get a hold of gambino's kustoms, i think he's a dealer for them. or sacramento vintage ford has it. cant tell you what we used though. its kind of like a government secret if you know what i mean.
